As a portrait photographer, I normally shoot at 50mm or longer focal lengths. However, I recently fell in love with the 35mm focal length after borrowing a friend’s Sigma Art 35mm f 1.4 lens. The wider focal length allows for more of the scenery to be included, and the quality of the sigma glass makes the images so smooth! I really like the distinctive look of the 35mm focal length, and of course, who doesn’t love the ability to stop down to f 1.4?!

I love this lens for close ups too. Look at how sharp the rings are, and the beautiful depth of field!

I’m a sucker for black and white as well, and the lens captures the light perfectly for it!

The Art in Action: Portraits

I also took the lens with me on this portrait shoot, and used it exclusively. It’s definitely my new favorite lens to shoot with. Check out how sharp it is, as well as how beautifully it captures the natural light!

I love how it captured the sunset light here too.

It thrives in low light- I took this shot at least 30 minutes after the sun set, if not more.

The Art in Action: Indoors

The Sigma 35mm Art f 1.4 lens rocks indoors. The wide aperture allows more light to be let in, without sacrificing sharpness or image quality. Check out these shots I was able to rock inside without any help from lighting equipment!
